Lorraine Siddell directed her final performance for the 32nd birthday celebration of the Brunswick Valley VIEW club to great applause at the Mullumbimby RSL last Thursday.

Having been director of the last five shows, she said it is time to hand on her mantle.

Voice, Interests and Education of Women – or VIEW for short – was formed in the 1960s as a chance for women to get together, form friendships and help disadvantaged children across Australia through the children’s charity The Smith Family.

Birthday show

‘We support seven disadvantaged Australian children,’ said local VIEW president Brenda Caligeros.

‘It is through our annual birthday show and our trading tables at our meetings and friendship mornings that we raise the funds to support our children.’

The local VIEW club meets every second Thursday of the month rotating between the Brunswick Heads Bowling Club, Mullumbimby Ex-Services Club and the Ocean Shores Country Club.

To find out about the next meeting keep an eye on the ‘On The Horizon’ section on the inside back page of The Echo.
